Nail Art Tutorial: Peppermint Candy Cane Nails

Only a couple of days left before Christmas Day!  What's a nail art addict like myself do?  Share the Christmas spirit on my nails! :)  I've got reader request on simplee Christmas-y nails, so I've thought about the simple Reds, Greens and Whites.  Which led me to an inspiration from a Peppermint Candy Canes!!!

Here's my version

Step 1:
Apply 2 coats of Elianto white nail polish.  Let dry.


Step 2:
Using Prettynails' 2 way nail art pen in Green, draw a thin green line diagonally.

Step 3:
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco thin brush polish in red, draw diagonal lines depending on your preference.


Use your imagination


The lines on each nails does not have to be the same

Step 4:
Apply a coat of any glitter polish to create an illusion of snow.  I am using Elianto's.

Step 5:
Apply your favorite top coat.  


Pepperminty Candy Cane Nails! :)
Lines doesn't have to be perfect but it's the thought that counts :)
Happy Holidays! :)
